Breast Cancer Awareness Month is about a lot more than loading up on pink ribbons, as is nicely explained by About.com Guide to Breast Cancer Pam Stephan. However, if you find yourself in need of a new mat or other yoga gear this month, the following items are a great way to show your support and donate a little along the way.
Jade Yoga continues to donate $5.00 from the sale of every natural rubber special pink mat to breast cancer organizations. They also have a similar deal on a teal mat, with the funds going to ovarian cancer causes.
Gaiam also has a pink mat on offer, decorated with a pink ribbon motif. One dollar from each sale is donated to fund breast cancer research.
You can show your support with a pink Yogitoes Skidless Towel and the company is donating 1% to breastcancer.org.
ToeSox are also in on the action, donating a unspecified amount to breast cancer charities with the purchase of their pink ribbon socks.
Zobha has 10% of the proceeds from the pink and black colorway of their popular Grace Tank top earmarked for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Lucy activewear has a whole bunch of different pink styles to choose from in their Breast Cancer Awareness collection, which supports the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Finally, stainless-steel water bottle company Klean Kanteen is focusing on prevention, with lots of info on their website and a $4.00 donation for each special edition bottle sold.
